Connecting with the Larger World of Philanthropy

Some donors are just not joiners. The director of one medium-sized California family foundation, established by a high-tech entrepreneur, describes how the donor “never attends meetings, never participates in anything else smacking of organized philanthropy. He is, however, a voracious reader on the subject and is probably as well-informed as anybody you will ever meet in the field of philanthropy.” This donor, incidentally, supports his foundation’s membership in both national and regional associations of grantmakers- it’s just that he doesn’t participate himself.
